The location is darling -- very charming. I have tried their Rooibos Chai several different ways. I purchased it from two of their locations and prepared it several ways to really give it a chance. Nothing helped. It is just dull, flavorless and boring. I will not give it another chance. BTW: It's expensive.

We decided to check out this store while touring historic St Augustine. While we were in there, we met a couple from Cedar Key, Florida that said they visit St. Augustine a few times a year just to go to this spice and tea shop. After heeding their advice about trying a spice called Florida Sunshine, we understand why. When... More

This is a place that my husband and I visit every time we go to St. Aug. We live about 30 min away, and love their looseleaf teas, and selection of salts! The staff there is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. On our most recent visit, one of the ladies there offered several different recipes that I could use with the... More

I love growing and drying my own herbs and spices, so I found this shop to be fascinating. I actually shopped at this tiny store twice during our recent visit. They have a nice selection of spices and teas. I'll return on my next visit.

I love cooking so the smells that hit you when you walk in is Heaven. I had fun going around sniffing the different varieties and finally decided on some sample packs because I can order a full size jar online if I like it. The cashier was super nice and we even got a free sample of blueberry tea. I... More

We saw the Tea Exchange on our first day in St Augustine, and we knew we'd found the place to find our daughter's gift for staying home and watching the dog for us. I was waited on by Veronica, and she was very knowledgeable. She showed me the tea shelves, explained how they were arranged, and then she encouraged me... More

I would like to address to this. First of all, this was not the owner that spoke to you.
